Historic building gets reprieve

The Historic Landmarks Foundation of Indiana and the Salvation Army have worked out a deal that could save a Queen-Anne-style
building on Michigan Street just west of Alabama Street.

The Salvation Army had applied for a permit to demolish
the 1895 structure, which was built as a single-family home and is next door to the not-for-profit’s headquarters. The
group agreed to hold off on demolition for a year to allow Historic Landmarks to patch the roof and hunt for a new user for
the vacant building.

Historic Landmarks officials believe the architecture and the location on a highly traveled
street just off Massachusetts Avenue should help them find a use that still would have to be approved by the Salvation Army.

The contact on the property is Mark Dollase, vice president of preservation services, at mdollase@historiclandmarks.org.
